Brandon Wade, the world’s only dating auction website, conducted a study with 25,000 of its 450,000 members to find how long an individual should wait before sleeping with someone.

The study showed that 77% of women said they considered sex appropriate after the fifth date, whereas 69% of men said after the second date. However, 80% of men said that if a girl slept with them on the first date, they did not see their relationship developing into a serious relationship. While 83% of women admitted to having at least 3 one night stands in their lifetime.

“The end goal of dating is to procreate. People love being intimate. Even though men are the sex that prefers instant gratification, we are very competitive and don’t want to know that the girl we’re sleeping with will give into any other guy just as easily,” said Brandon Wade, CEO and Founder of

The study also took a survey to better understand women and men’s intentions for one night stand:

43% of men said they had a one night stand because they were too drunk, while 35% said they did it for the sake of having sex.
25% of women said they had a one night stand because they were too drunk, while 7% said they did it for the sake of having sex.
38% of women said they had a one night stand to gain false intimacy, while 30% said they did it as a rebound after a breakup.
9% of men said they had a one night stand to gain false intimacy, while 13% said they did it as a rebound after a breakup.

When subjects were surveyed about the morning after an unintended one night stand, 65% of women said they left before the men woke up, while 53% of men said they stayed for breakfast or brunch so as to diffuse the situation.

“The saying is true, women are from Venus and men are from Mars. They deal with situations differently. Whereas a woman would rather avoid a confrontation and deal with the matter later on neutral grounds, men naturally want to solve a problem right then and there to avoid a possibly awkward situation. Not to say that either method is ideal,” said Brandon Wade, author and dating expert. “The best exit route is to meet in between. Don’t disappear without a word. Wait until the other person is awake to assess the situation. Have a casual conversation over coffee to discreetly measure how comfortable he or she is around you afterwards, but don’t stay longer than that. Exchange pleasantries, and then go about your day. If everything went well that morning, leave planning your next meeting to the next day.”

Metropolitan cities, such as Miami, New York, and Los Angeles, had a lower date to sex ratio 3:1, meaning individuals waited until the third date to become intimate. Whereas suburban areas, such as Columbus, Portland, and Pittsburgh, which had a 5:1 ratio. The following is a list of US cities that had the lowest date to sex ratio:

1.) Miami
2.) Los Angeles
3.) Chicago
4.) New York City
5.) Las Vegas
6.) Houston
7.) San Francisco
8.) Phoenix
9.) Atlanta
10.) Seattle

When the website polled the study group on whether their date to sex ratio had changed since joining the website, 86% of men said they had significantly more sex in less time. Though men believe sex should be after the second date, the average ratio for a man is about 3 to 4 dates before having sexual relations with a woman. The women surveyed showed little increase on their sex ratio according to the study.
